"Everyone Pitch In" ~ Obama

President-elect Barack Obama paints a room at Sasha Bruce House, an emergency shelter for teens in Washington, January 19, 2009.

I think Obama might regret this pose.LOL

EXIT sign over a window???? What am I missing here.


But then there is George W Bush


And of course Ronald Reagan

Wild Thing's comment........

LOL the photo of Obama, he and John Kerry share the same curse of looking ridiculous when photographed doing physical activities.

Emergency Shelter for teens ? Is that for when they run away, or are in trouble with the law for selling drugs or shooting the kid down the street. Another way for the 'youts' of this country to avoid responsibility.

Where are the parents. Or in this case the Parent and more than likely the Grandmother stuck with raising her grandchildren.

Oh the Exit sign is for when the Cops raid the place they can jump out the window. Only problem is 90 percent can't read.

Pitch in , I don't think so.

Reagan with a Chainsaw. Mr. Gorbachev can run but he can't hide.

Except for the dog and pony show for the media above, Obama probably hasn't ever done a days work of manual labor in his life.

Why not have the teens who are using the shelter do the painting. What better way to teach them some responsibility than to have them work on the place they're staying at?

BobF grabbed my first thought about making the teens do the work. Thats the wy we did itin the Army.

Actually, I think Obama is planning on having all of us taxpayers doing the "pitch in" work. That way the people who won't help themselves, still won't have to help themselves.

I am making a pledge today to do nothing that the new watermelon king asks of me. That means nothing!

What is missing from the photo-op is jeans. Work worn Jeans, are something that Bush has and Reagan had. Maybe Obama can send somebody out to a DC secondhand shop to get some.

Kerry in his condom suit comes to mind. About 25 years back I had a trainee whose brother was an 'engineer', his being a 'minority' and by virtue of both their having token status, it was my job to impart knowledge, skill and experience to Chief Running Dumb. It was an impossible task, he already knew it all by heritage. One day he asked me a stupid question, yes folks there are stupid questions and I never answered but only pointed to Websters Dictionary, implying, look it up yourself. That brought out a charge of 'racial discrimination'. I was brought before ER and my supervisor where I unloaded about him in the universal vernacular. If he thought that would bring me around to packing his sorry ass he was sorely mistaken, I never spoke to the sumbitch again. It was icy around the shop and he cracked first by asked for a transfer. So Cuchieddie you have read my tolerant and cooperative mind concerning this new Chief Running Dumb.

Sasha Bruce House was only one of Barack Obama's painting jobs yesterday. The other was......

Hey Annointed Messiah, I suggest you MEMORIZE the oath before you're sworn in!
" I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of the President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. So help me God."
I'd hate to see you MISPEAK before 250 million viewers...

Thanks Jack

Mark, hahahahaa good one about the Exit sign.

I agree, where are the parents or parent or someone. Not sure if they are run aways or what it didn't give much information.

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 20, 2009 07:36 PM

JohnE PFC U.S. Army, yesssss thanks!! I love those photos of Bush and Reagan.

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 20, 2009 07:37 PM

BobF, good point. If I had been there I would have had the kids doing that very thing.

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 20, 2009 07:39 PM

Tom, yes,I demand to see Pelosi and the rest of them scrub some floors, paint some walls and oh heck she can clean the bathrooms in the government buildings on weekends. heh heh

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 20, 2009 07:42 PM

cuchieddie, good pledge, I will join you.

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 20, 2009 07:43 PM

Avitar, I agree, if he does have jeans on they look brand new. Plus the shirt, it is not for really getting work done, all he did was roll up his sleeves on his shirt.

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 20, 2009 07:45 PM

Jack, LOL....yesssss that's the one. "Kerry in his condom suit comes to mind.".....

That was horrible Jack, you did a good thing and teaching him to look it up. Nothing wrong with that at all. sheesh

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 20, 2009 07:48 PM

Les, heh heh, gosh if really did paint it a different color there would be a lot of outrage.

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 20, 2009 07:51 PM

Darth, yes that was awful what happened. I was wondering if he would mess that up since he hates our Constitution so much.
